    My boyfriend Eric(RelentlessTaco) and I bought this 2003 Tacoma used from a dealer near Portland, OR and brought it home for him to use as a project truck to design products off and showcase them, while giving me a sweet truck to drive.

    The truck is an ‘03 Extra cab SR5 with 2.7L 4cyl with 5 speed manual, and had just under 118k miles on it when we got it. It came optioned with the CD player, AC, rear sliding window, but manual windows and mirrors

    This is how the truck looked when we brought it home:

    The previous owner already did a handful of modifications including:
    -3” Revtec lift
    -3” body lift
    -35x12.50x15 BFG KM2’s on 15” American Racing Teflon coated ‘Chamber’ wheels
    -Custom made wrap around rear tube bumper and rock sliders
    -Powdercoat Black red label Delta tool box
    -Tinted front windows to 35%.

    The truck just started to finally get some new mods done to it. The wimpy sliders without gussets that came on the truck got cut off and are were just replaced with some Relentless sliders, and the tube bumper was removed and sold as well. The rear bumper was then replaced with a basic 96-04 Tacoma Relentless plate bumper, but a tire carrier will still be added to it later on. The front bumper also got swapped to a Relentless front plate bumper with fog light cutouts and will still get a center hoop added later.


    Future mods include:
    -Add center hoop and lights to front bumper
    -color match the grille to body color red
    -Add tire carrier to rear bumper
    -Add amp/sub to stereo and replace all the speakers with Alpine components
    -Regear to 4.88’s
    -Upgrade suspension with coilovers, 3” lift leaf springs, and new shocks
    -Lights on front bumper
    -Black out or color match grille
    -debadge or blacked out badges
    And the body lift will eventually get removed and the truck will likely be solid-axle swapped, locked, and fully skid plated! :D
